Applying the 5:2 Diet – Easiest Fasting Technique

Applying the 5:2 Diet – Easiest Fasting Technique

The following is a recent email newsletter we sent out to subscribers detailing one extremely common misconception – – – daily subtle calorie reduction is not easier than fasting (nor more effective).

Mindful eating – 5 Ways to make dinner time enjoyable and avoid overeating

Mindful eating – 5 Ways to make dinner time enjoyable and avoid overeating

Positive change doesn’t have to include major goal setting and doesn’t always need to be able restricting bad habits. Positive change can be simple. For most body transformation can be as simple as applying a mindful eating practice and consciously trying to avoid overeating. The discussion of benefits of a reduced calorie diet are very mainstream at the moment. I have personally been...
Green Julius (Healthy Orange Julius)

Green Julius (Healthy Orange Julius)

When I was little I loved Orange Julius. As I became older and found out ingredients included regular sugar, dairy (and eggs?) I quickly fell out of love. I do, however, still love the flavors of creamy orange and vanilla together. So, David and I often make this healthy version of the classic Orange Julius that we adore. It is super easy, refreshing and reminds you of those classic flavors from...
Epi 6: Why we dropped dairy and think you should too (don’t get mad)

Epi 6: Why we dropped dairy and think you should too (don’t get mad)

In today’s episode we cover the recent USDA recommendations for nutrition. There were many positives but also a few really disappointing guidelines/recommendations in this revision.

Whipped Lime Pie Beauty Smoothie

Whipped Lime Pie Beauty Smoothie

This year for me is all about “getting back to the basics”. I have found that in this super fast, loud, social media filled world everyone is screaming their opinion. It can be overwhelming and tiring. This year I am committed to slowing down a bit, focusing on my own lane and bringing it back to “what works” in my own life. Not every super trendy idea is worth paying...
Super Easy 1-Pot Vegan Thanksgiving

Super Easy 1-Pot Vegan Thanksgiving

Here in Canada we had our Thanksgiving this past weekend. I usually like to make Holidays special and be sure to create all our favorite Holiday Recipes. This year, however, we had just moved homes and offices so I was really tired out. I decided to cut out our creamy whipped cauliflower, faux cheesy broccoli and desserts keeping our meal super simple yet delicious. I always decide between...
Blueberry Beet Booster – Energy Smoothie

Blueberry Beet Booster – Energy Smoothie

If you may have noticed the last couple weeks I have been heavy on the smoothies. This is due to me tightening up my summer habits and focusing on my Fall goals. I am firmly on the Bikini Body Program all the time as a way of life but in the summer I find that more cocktails and irregular meal times sneak in. Having smoothies as my mid-morning snack as a way of life on the Bikini Body Program is...

How to Lose Weight, Prevent Diabetes & Live 15 Years Longer

Weight gain as a society (North American) has been on the rise for the last 30 years… and with it – Type 2 Diabetes. The association of Type 2 Diabetes and obesity has been something most have noticed. It has come to the point where when someone is obese it is almost assumed that they either are already suffering from Type 2 Diabetes or they are in the early stages – often...

The Secret Truth About Sugar in Fruit #AskDrDuizer

I love busting myths about health. This becomes most rewarding when it revolves around healthy eating and promoting the Holistic Nutrition principles I initially learned from Amy in my early 20s (before even considering Naturopathic Medical School). Recently a blog I follow for their natural medicine research posted about a few new studies (done since 2013) illustrating how sugar from whole...

How to Choose a Protein Powder – #AskDrDuizer

In today’s #AskDrDuizer I will be answering a question submitted recently about protein powder choices. This is such an important question because so many struggle to know if they should be consuming protein powder and if so, which one of the thousands to choose from. I have been using protein powder and sarms since I first hit the weight room at 14 years old. I was an athletic kid and...
